Fostered in Spokane WA

Hi, I’m Gus. Foster-pop says I’m a smart, thinking dog with a strong sense of identity. I think he means I don’t like being forced to do things. Ask me instead. I might need a minute to mull it over before I happily comply. I’m not difficult, but I’m not a typical runaround, yippee dog either. I’ll run and play with you like all Boxers do, but I’ll also watch pretty sunsets with you. I’ll sit near you when you read. I’ll snuggle up to you if you just want to share a moment.

I eat just about anything, don’t beg, and share food well. I don’t mind crates and am very patient waiting for you unsupervised. I know my basic commands: sit, down, shake, stay(-ish), etc.. I’m friendly to other dogs, but not sure what cats or kids are – maybe if you showed me a picture or let me get a sample to sniff, I’ll let you know. I get in and out of cars by myself. I don’t pull on the leash and I come when you call – well, most of the time except when I **SQUIRREL!**

Um, where was I? Ok, let’s get this part out of the way. I do not look like a small Boxer; I look like a large boxer that someone shrank in the wash. This does not diminish the size of my heart or my sense of loyalty. It does make most people chuckle. My shrink says that’s what caused my “Nee-pole-lee-and-come-som ething”. He says that it contributed to my lack of confidence. The therapy has helped a lot because I no longer feel afraid. Instead, I ache to feel like I belong somewhere, and bond with someone, and give them all the love I have. Just please don’t carry me around in a purse.

I'm a good boy who just needs a strong leader to keep working with me as I strive for perfection. And look at me. I mean, c'mon. Better fill out an adoption application:  

About Northwest Boxer Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Northwest Boxer Rescue (NWBR) believes that every boxer deserves a chance to live a happy life in a loving home. Abandoned or homeless Boxers will always find shelter, medical care, and ultimately a new home through the efforts of NWBR. By working with committed volunteers and local veterinarians we are able to rescue boxers every year, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them perfect loving forever homes. Working in conjunction with city and county groups, NWBR strives to educate the public and help end animal overpopulation and needless suffering. The commitment to share the love of Boxers is never ending.

We never discriminate on the basis of health or age. Our animals are evaluated, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and receive any necessary medical treatment before they are placed in carefully screened homes.
